I’m happy to announce that our carrier library now includes a woven wrap – a Hoppediz in the bright and beautiful Delhi colourway.
Hoppediz are very similar to Storchenwiege woven wraps and the Didymos stripes range of woven wraps. They have quite a dense, thick weave which makes them super supportive, especially as your child gets older and heavier. In addition, they’re really wide (this one is about 4 cm wider than my Storchenwiege Inka which is already considered a wide wrap) so they are great for back carries for toddlers.
Like other European woven wraps, Hoppediz are made from high quality cotton free of pesticides and chemicals.
Hoppediz have a couple of extra handy features – firstly they have middle markers on both the top and bottom rails of the wrap. This is very helpful when doing back carries. In addition, they come with a little pocket at one end to put your keys, phone etc.
Hoppediz have lots and lots of different colourways, possibly more than any other manufacturer, so there is something for everyone. The Delhi colourway we have is very cheerful in shades of red and orange.
The wrap comes with an extensive instruction booklet so it doesn’t matter if you’ve never used a woven wrap before.
All in all, a very good example of a woven wrap for you to try out. Please email our librarian if you’d like to try it (or ask at one of our slingmeets).
If you’re thinking of buying one for yourself, let them know that you’re a Babywearing Wellington member and you’ll get a 10% discount.
Thanks again to Anna at MayBaby!
